We are deep in the throes of summer now. You can barely remember the mounds of snow we shoveled just a few months ago. I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and warmer temps. Summer brings a sense of freedom and a carefree spirit. At PLCC, we have been spending time on Sundays discussing Super Heroes. It has been a chance for many of us to reminisce about our childhood days. On July 6th, we are taking a look at Captain America. I had forgotten his story. He was just a small boy trying to enlist in the armed services during World War II. Every branch rejected him because of his small, sickly stature. Then, one special unit decided to give him a chance. It was an experimental unit. Steve Rogers would be subjected to special medical intervention that would transform him from lowly Private Rogers into Captain America.
We have all faced rejection at different times in our lives. We have been told we are too small, too tall, too smart, too quiet, too loud, or too inhibited. But God sees us differently. God looks at the heart while the world judges us from the outside. God knows us because He created us. And God desires for us to partner with Him to do great things. God is able to make a weak man strong! Do you believe this? Do you believe that God can turn our weaknesses into strengths? Do you believe that God has called and set you apart for the Kingdom?
I hope you will hear this today. God has shaped you and called you to be the person HE wants you to be. God makes weak men and weak women strong! Be transformed today by the power of God.
